Chapter Summary

The arguments for European integration put forward by successive Irish governments contain the conceit that Ireland’s EU membership has been of benefit not only to Ireland but also to ‘Europe’ (as both place and project). The political speeches analysed in this chapter demonstrate the complementary nature of the themes of ‘Europeanisation’ and ‘Hibernicisation’ in Irish official discourse. Although the meaning and interpretation of Europeanisation has changed over the course of Ireland’s European Union membership, it has remained vital to Irish political actors that this relationship is presented very much as a ‘two way’ one, with Ireland making an important practical and idealised contribution to the EU. The chapter concludes with an assessment of the viability of such discourses in the light of growing public wariness (and perhaps weariness) of them in a changing EUIrish context.
